Russell, Bay of Islands, Northland


Idyllic beach hideaway with stunning panoramic water views, north facing sun decks, private beach and safe anchorage. Tucked away in a secluded bay this incredible two storey property has four double bedrooms (master bedroom features full en suite), generous living and dining area with state of the art entertainment system. The modern kitchen looks out over the water for breathtaking sunset views while you cook. And if you prefer to do your cooking and dining outside there is a fantastic outdoor area with large gas BBQ and outdoor table that seats ten – this beach house is made for entertaining!

Located five minutes from the Russell ferry it won’t be long before you are wandering through the beautiful landscaped gardens for a swim, where you can rinse off under the outdoor shower on your way back to the house.

If you decide to venture into Russell’s historic township for a bite to eat, you are spoilt for choice with the variety of delicious restaurants.

  • Amazing place to stay

    Amazing place to stay. We were welcomed with chocolate and champagne. The bed and pillows are made of marshmellows, We stayed when the weather was terrible and thankfully there is in outside area undercover. Views to die for. Kids were happy they had an xbox to play on too. Totally recommend!!!!

  • This property is really something special

    This property is really something special. Not only does it have beautiful views over the water but it's a beautiful and practical home on its own. Every detail has been thought of to ensure any guests stay is as enjoyable and smooth as possible, it's so well equipped! Things you don't even realise you need or want are there for you! The linen is gorgeous too, it really feels like you are staying somewhere very luxurious. I would recommend this property to anyone, no matter what the occassion.
